It is very common for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients to have high creatinine and potassium levels. Someone is wondering if there is relation between creatinine and potassium. Well, they are both the result in advanced stages of kidney disease.
Why do creatinine and potassium levels increase?
Creatinine is waste product of muscle metabolism. It is produced at a stable rate and is discharged by kidneys. When kidneys are damaged, extra creatinine build up in the blood. Normal creatinine level is 0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2 mg/dl for male. People with one kidney have creatinine 1.8-1.9mg/dl.
Normal potassium levels in the blood is 3.6 and 4.8 milliequivalents per liter. Most of the potassium in your body is found inside of your cells, although there a small amount circulates throughout your body in your blood.
High potassium level in the blood may lead to shortness of potassium, nausea, numbness and muscle pain,etc.
Treatment to reduce creatinine and potassium
From the above analysis, we can see that the root cause of high creatinine and potassium level is damaged renal tissues, especially the filtering units--glomeruli. Therefore, to deal with this condition, patients should take treatment that can improve renal function. You can take the following suggestions:
-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: Based on hundreds traditional Chinese herbs, this therapy can expand blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation. Therefore, excess creatinine and potassium can be filtered.
-Oral Chinese Medicine Therapy
Oral medicines have direct effect for people. Our experts choose natural Chinese herbs to help repair the damaged glomeruli to promote the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Most commonly used are Maikang Composition. It is a Chinese herbal decoction and should be taken every day.
Combing oral medicines and external natural therapies, we can help kidney disease patients to decrease creatinine and potassium levels effectively. You can trust us!
